Love this place. Four floors of fun. It is a children's museum but adults will like it too. Gets pretty crowded because it is so much fun. It is a go to place for class trips and bad weather days.

Good place to take kids for a couple of hours especially when it's a rainy or cold day. There are usually a number of different activities going on during the weekends. Parking can be a challenge; aside from street parking there are public lots a few blocks away. Tip: only has snack vending machines in a small eating area on... More

Had a great time. Lots of interactive things to see, touch and do. And do not forget all the explanations we had to furnish. Will definitely return again. Generations of kids have enjoyed this attraction.

I took 4 grandchildren ages 5-11. They all enjoyed some parts of the experience and all of them said they are looking forward to going back. Fun for kids.

What a great museum for little kids! I would say the best age group would be 3-10, but older and younger can have some great fun! Worth a trip if you are in the area. You can cover it in about 2-3 hours at most.

I nannied in Ann Arbor for a few years while I went to school and I loved taking the children here to play! It's so educational and fun, even for the littlest children! This was before May 2016, but I'm looking forward to taking my own children the next time we visit family in Michigan!

This is a nice science oriented museum. It is split into areas by age level. There are lots of fun hands on things to do and a nice gift shop.
